Survive the Fall to Rock Bottom

The burning inside my clenched fists
is screaming at me to let go.
My mind is distorted by hatred
of a thousand voices
spoken by the waves of
a tormented ocean below.
Where did it start?
How did it start?
I can’t think through the
weight of tear drenched eyes.
My body limply hangs from
a single point in time,
with only a thread
of dry connection
to hold me up.
The scissors are already
in position to cut
and I can hear the demons
laughing while the blades inch closer.
Sirens in a far off land tell me
I can’t hold on long enough.
My hands are slipping
off this wretched bar
and I fear that this
could be the end.

Fall.

Slowly acceptance
creeps in to my head
and I cannot fight anymore,
I can’t struggle anymore.
The water makes me feel
like I am enveloped by
my deepest fears,
while the minute bubbles
explode in their violent rage.
Float up to the surface
of new light,
and fill my lungs with suprise.
Oxygen has never
tasted so sweet.

Survive.
